NGOWatch[edit]

Please can you stop editing this again and again without explaining yourself. Corruptcopper (talk) 16:42, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

What is there to explain. It was riddled with factual errors. The prior posters had confused NGOWatch with another NGO Monitor, and put lots of links that had to do with the later. There is no affiliation with the two organizations. It was just sloppy editing. I've added only factual information. The criticisms of NGO Watch refer to a defunct organization. I helped found a new website using the old name. Its goal is to be ideologically neutral, with an edge. It does shine a very bright light on ALL NGOs, left, right and center, particularly ones that advocate clearly political/ideological positions. For example, in the past few weeks, it sharply criticized the conservative US Chamber of Commerce for its Luddite public statements denying global warming. NGO seeks to be an equal opportunity critique of organizations that traditionally have gotten a "free ride" in the media and by governments. If that puts some NGOs back on their heels, that's good. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Runjonrun (talkcontribs) 19:40, 23 October 2009

As I already said here, you are correct that some sentences in the previous version were incorrect because someone had confused NGOWatch and NGO Monitor. But that had already been fixed before your last series of edits, and the rest of you assertions in unconvincing.
Even if the relaunched NGOWatch were a completely unrelated organization, the "old" NGOWatch would still be relevant - there is no justification for deleting the historical information about it -, and you would be asked to create a separate article for the "new" one. But as it still seems to be backed by the same organizations, one can hardly claim that they are completely unrelated.
If you wish the article to describe the difference between the relaunched NGOWatch and the previous version more clearly, you are welcome to point out independent, reliable sources supporting such statements on the article talk page. In the meantime, I ask you again to respect the Conflict of Interest guidelines, i.e. to stop making controversial edits to the article itself and accept that Wikipedia is not for promotional activities.

Look, the diatribes that you are writing are not supported by any evidence. I was not party to the creation of the other NGOWatch. I created the current one. I never wrote for the other one--no one did!! The atatcks against it were never factually based, as NOTHING was done with the website for 4 years after its launch...it just sat their, unused, and not updated. Give up your crusade. To quote a website such as PrivateEye that the old site was a Bush creation is absurd. I'm a registered Democrat, for god's sake, and found of the Democratic Party in my town, Indian Hill, in Cincinnati. You're attacking something that doesn't exist because of your ideology. You have done no research on this site...either it's history or its current content. You can't even get your spelling correct! In my comments, I wrote only descriptive information with links to events put on by NGOWatch so people can evaluate the site for themselves. If you don't agree with the descriptions on the site, then cite a reputable critic that has evaluated it and criticized it. None has. Save your propaganda for another. I've made No "controversial" edits...the gibberish you are putting in--highly inflammatory and unrelated to this website--is totally out of line. PLEASE follow Wikipedia guidelines, as I do. If you actually believe something I posted is "controversial" rather than just a straight statement of fact, then discuss it here, don't just continue to put up unsubstantiated trash.

Welcome / Conflict of interest in NGOWatch[edit]

Hi Runjonrun, welcome to Wikipedia! Thanks for identifying yourself [1], but please note our Conflict of interest guidelines. You are welcome to point out what you see as inaccuracies or others problems on the talk page of the article, but you should refrain from making edits to the article itself which could be considered controversial.

Encyclopedia articles about an organization might differ from a typical self-presentation of that organization in that they are less focused on the present and future, and place more emphasis on its history. Even if the revived NGOWatch differs from the previous incarnation, I see no reason to delete relevant and well-sourced historical information.

Please note that the above editor has posted at the conflict of interest noticeboard, here regarding your edits. You are encouraged to comment in the discussion. Smartse (talk) 17:23, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Please note that runjonrun--the person being criticized by the above user--has posted at the conflict of interest noticeboard, here regarding the above "editors" comments. I believe they are factually inaccurate and biased. Until I modified this web page, various people had entered information referring first to an organization that is not this one (one known as NGO Monitor, which has no affiliation in any way shape or form with NGOWatch, and has its own Wikipedia page) and then subsequently insisted on putting in repeated references from one lone web site---not one well known or with widespread credibility--criticizing an iteration of NGOWatch which went defunct in 2007. This was pointed out to the above person, but he continued on his crusade to post misinformation and out of context information. I believe if you read the website now it is as absolutely neutral as could be found. If credible organizations come forward to analyze the new NGOWatch (which was founded in May, 2009), citing evidence, positively or negatively that's great, it should be posted. But this crusade by this "editor" violates the very rules that has made Wikipedia a credible source.

The above comment was undoubtedly added by Runjonrun. He removed his own signature. He has shown that he has zero regard for the rules of the community. HOW CAN WE EVICT HIMMasonpew (talk) 05:17, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Those references referred to a prior organization that no longer exists. It creates a false impression that it applies to this website.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Runjonrun (talkcontribs) 19:57, 23 October 2009

Hello sir[edit]

I just want to remind you that editing a biographical page about yourself in violation of NPOV is disallowed on wikipedia and it is my belief that you have repeatedly violated the spirit of this rule by editing your own page once-weekly and removing properly sourced information. I would ask you to reconsider what you are trying to accomplish and to please adhere to the guidelines as you edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.170.76.168 (talk) 04:45, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
